Cookie Notice

You should be aware that when you use our websites, mobile sites, or mobile apps, we may collect information by using 'cookies'. By using our websites, mobile sites, or mobile apps, you accept the use of cookies as described below.

What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are small pieces of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Your browser sends these cookies back to the website every time you visit the site again, so it can recognize you and can then tailor what you see on the screen.

Why use cookies?

Cookies are an important part of the internet. They make using websites much smoother and affect lots of the useful features of websites.

Some cookies are essential so you can move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.

A group of cookies, often called 'analytics cookies' are used to gather information about how people navigate (find their way through) our sites. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. The information collected is anonymous and is grouped with the information from everyone else's cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person's activity. Analytics cookies only record activity on the site you are on and they are only used to improve how a website works.

We use cookies in order to remember your choices, to give you a better user experience by improving our web sites and for providing content more accurately suited to your needs. Cookies allow a more detailed level of tracking that helps us to gain a better understanding of potential areas for improvement so as to continually improve the relevance of and accessibility of the content we provide.

This means we use cookies in order to remember:

Session cookies and persistent cookies

There are basically two types of cookies: "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". The session cookies are related to the current visit to the website and are deleted automatically when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will be stored on your computer. Persistent cookies self-delete after a certain period but will be renewed every time you visit the website.

How to avoid and delete cookies?

If you do not want us to place or read cookies on your computer, you can deselect cookies in your browser where you can select the cookies that are to be allowed, blocked or deleted.

If you are using a PC and a recent browser and you want to remove the cookies that are already placed on your computer, press CTRL + SHIFT + DELETE at the same time.

If the hot keys do not work in your browser, visit the support site of the relevant browser.
